Harry Potter Movies Commercial Success

The Harry Potter films have grossed more money than any other movie series ever. The author, J.K. Rowling, sold the movie rights for the first four Harry Potter for one million dollars to Warner Bros. movie studio.

Actors in Harry Potter Movies

One of Rowling's conditions was that the main cast had to be British. Even so, Richard Harris played Dumbledore and he was Irish. The three main characters were unknown actors. Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter, Rupert Grint as Ronald Weasley, and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger have been with all of the Harry Potter movies and have signed contracts to finish all of the Harry Potter movies.

Some well-known actors have played parts in Harry Potter movies. They include Alan Rickman as Snape and the aforementioned Richard Harris as Professor Dumbledore. Richard Harris died in 2002 and was replaced by Michael Gambon as Professor Albus Dumbledore.

Directors for Harry Potter Movies

Steven Spielberg decided not to direct the first Harry Potter movie. Chris Columbus became the first director of the Harry Potter movies. Columbus also directed the second Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Since then, the directors have changed with each Harry Potter movie. Alfonso Cuaron and Mike Newell were directors. David Yates is director for both Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix as well as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

      I just love all there is to the Harry Potter series. So far the first and the last movies were the best in the series. Of course it's quite hard to include all there is in the books onto the screen.

      great hub regards Zsuzsy
